Under the Sea

I frequently attend Mer events, but sometimes I just don't feel like wearing a tail. Sorry, Merfriends, but the tail limits the kinds of dances one can do and I'm all about the dancing!
For your next underwater ball or just for a really cool fantasy look, may I suggest Precious Octopus from IrrISIStible available @ Square1 until September 30. The outfit comes complete with hat, jewelry, shoes, tentacle skirt and bodice in blue, green and purple (shown).

Seven days

I visited one of the Editor's Choice locations which was a minimalist art experience:
Seven boxes, each representing a day of the week.
Each with one pose stool and one stool to teleport to the next box.
Was it art ? I don't know. Art is whatever the artist decides it is.
One person's art is another person's photo background...

Luckily for me the Kit outfit from Emerald Couture @ Square1 is nice and colorful, or this would have been an exercise in monochromatic photography. The outfit comes in four versions: Tiger (green), Leopard (blue), Zebra (gray) and Tribal (shown).


Hair ~ Analog Dog Sassafras light brown
Head ~ Lelutka Simone 3.0
Skin ~ Glam Affair Susan Africa 01
Body ~ Maitreya Lara 4.1
Outfit ~ Emerald Couture Kit Tribal [Belleza, Ebody, Maitreya, Slink, TMP] *
Shoes ~ Emerald Couture Kit (included with outfit) *

The September round of Square1 offers some seriously cute items. I decided to start out the month with this lovely fantasy gown from irrISIStable. It comes with everything you need to impress at your next court ball or fantasy gala ~ dress, rose and pearl tiara, bracelet, necklace are all included. I used the lovely Natural French Nails from Ilse Pinklady Nails, which perfectly compliment the dress colors.

Fantasy Gay Pride ~ Day 10 ~ Final Event

Fantasy Gay Pride 2017 draws to a close today, Sunday, September 3


2 pm SLT. Our final dance will be a two hour tribute to Sir Elton John with DJ Starhawk Starostin. Participants are invited to come to the Star's Theater on the hill in the Fantasy Gay Pride sim. 
Wear your ultimate in glitzy, glammy, sparkly, shiny silliness. There will be a costume contest for "Best in Glitz". Anything that represents classy, flashy fashion will be right in style. If you tend to be more subdued in your apparel, come anyway! It's a PARTY!

The sim-wide hunt will end @ 7pm SLT, so be sure to get there in time to find the crystal stars scattered over the sim. There are nearly 40 free gifts to find. Hunt Clues are available from the kiosks at the Reception Area.

Many thanks to all those who have made this year's FGP a success. The entertainers have been superb, the dances have been delightful, the sim design and construction is amazing and the guests have been wonderful!

See the Flickr page to see what you may have missed.
We'll see you next year for Fantasy Gay Pride 2018!

Fantasy Gay Pride 2017 ~ Day 9, Sept 2

OMG! Only two more days to visit Fantasy Gay Pride 2017 before it disappears back into the mists from which it sprang. Fortunately, we have two wonderful events today designed to give you memories you'll treasure for the rest of your Second Life!


1 pm SLT MADONNA meets Disney
This stage show developed specifically to be presented @ Fantasy Gay Pride features production numbers starring the music of Madonna mixed with the magic of Disneyesque settings and costumes.
Presented by MADONNA SL (Sasha Laryukov) and a whole crew of wonderfully talented and sexy back-up dancers and housed in a special theater built just for the show, please join us for an afternoon of fun and wonderful imagery.
MADONNA Meets Disney HERE


6 pm SLT Clockwerk Doll takes over the stream and invites you to join the dance on the face of Saturn.
Ki Sporg has her finger on the pulse of  SL live music and in the last several years has become involved with SL dance as well. As her alter ego, Clockwerk Doll, she will DJ the music and have an entire audience dancing together in no time. We hope you will join us for Steampunk dance at it's most enjoyable when Clockwerk Doll appears for a special show



This is a totally interactive experience with wonderful music and dance animations choreographed by Clockwerk Doll to make you fell like the star of the show. You're the audience, but you are also the entertainment. There's nothing quite like it!

Steampunk wear is encouraged, but if you don't have a bunch of gears and leather in your closet, come anyway! It's all about the fun!

Join us on the face of the Saturn Clock

Fantasy Gay Pride ~ Day 8

One area of Fantasy Gay Pride 2017 is based on the Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey.
These books are richly populated with complicated social orders, powerful forces, magical creatures and intense story lines in a well laid out universe and history. *


We will be celebrating all things noble, mystical and magical @ two events today, September 1.

2 pm SLT finds us in our medieval/fantasy best dancing in the courtyard of the Castle to a variety of fantasy and world music with Tamlorn Cauterhaugh Wood. There will be a costume contest for "Best in Medieval / Fantasy", so wear your robes, gowns, crowns, wings and express your fantasy best! No costume? No problem! Come and join us in the dance!

Tamlorn returns to the stream @ 5 pm SLT to once again dazzle us with rich fantasy music. There will be no costume contest at this dance, but we still encourage you to express your fantasy self at its finest ~ This is FANTASY Gay Pride, after all!

If you haven't explored a fantasy persona in SL, feel free to talk to the folk you'll see at the dances. Most of us are fae, elven, or magical creatures all the time. We love to share ideas about how to develop a fantasy avatar and where to find the best costumes, wings and magical ways to express yourself!


*For the purposes of Fantasy Gay Pride, we explored the social structure of the cultures in the books, which mirror cultures in the real life world. To quote directly from Wikipedia:

While sexuality is not depicted in graphic detail, sexual orientation is explored. Both the Shin'a'in and Tayledras cultures view homosexuality as a normal, positive part of their culture.
In the country of Valdemar, which has the creed "There is no one true way", all sexual orientations are officially acceptable. However, some people in Valdemar disapprove and can be actively hostile towards same-sex relationships. This is explored in more detail in the Last Herald's Mage Series, in which the main character is homosexual. , In Karse, it does not seem to be persecuted, but it also seems to be something which is not actively spoken about or looked at closely.
In Rethwellan historically, homosexuality was considered highly taboo, and the dominant religious cult in the kingdom seemed to very actively persecute it; by the time of the series "present" this may have moderated to strong social disapproval.  ~ That sounds a lot like the real world, doesn't it?
